"The draft document has been out since April and widely available," said Thor Rollins, Biocompatibility Expert at Nelson Laboratories. "It has not been formally released, but there is a lot of buzz about the document. Many people are having a difficult time interpreting what is different, what has changed and what kind of impact it will have moving forward. Though only a draft, it does give insight on what FDA is thinking."
During the free consultations, participants can go over any biocompatibility topic they wish with Rollins. Some suggested topics may include:
